I am wondering if you all have any advice for this newbie. I don't want to do anything stupid, and wish I could find FEL lessons on the internet, something that would say "First try this for 30 minutes. Then progress to that."

Any advice is welcome from those of you who've got experience.

the back fill I have seen was #57 rock almost to ground level, above the french drain ?
keep your hand on the joy stick !
